Summer Institutes for Teachers

This summer, you can enroll in courses that will build your knowledge in content area and improve your instructional skills.

Molloy College Summer Institutes may be taken for graduate credit or on a non-credit basis for in-service credit. All of the Summer Institutes are offered in an intensive, one-week format at either our Rockville Centre Campus or at our Suffolk Center on the grounds of Republic Airport in East Farmingdale.

The Summer Institutes are generally offered during the months of June, July and August. The course descriptions, schedule of classes and tuition rates are generally available by late winter/early spring each year.

CTLE Credit
Each 3-credit graduate course is approved for 45 hours of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE). Click here for further information on the new CTLE requirements.

The Summer Institutes for Teachers are broken-down into three main categories:

Advanced Placement (AP) Summer Institutes

Molloy College, in cooperation with the College Board, is offering Advanced Placement Summer Institutes to teachers of Advanced Placement courses in nineteen (20) subject areas for the summer of 2018. Click here for more information.

National Grid Foundation - Teaching Green Institute Grant Program (TGI)

Molloy College and the National Grid Foundation continue an innovative institute  that was founded in 2011: The Molloy College: National Grid Foundation Teaching Green Institute (TGI). TGI is designed to train middle school and high school teachers in environmental issues and to provide suggestions on incorporating environmentally focused curricula into their classrooms.

Molloy College is pending the grant for 2018.

We will offer two institutes for 2018, one for middle school teachers and one for high school teachers. The Institutes will be offered June 25-28, 2018, Monday-Thursday, from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. each day at Molloy's Suffolk Center campus in East Farmingdale. The Institutes may be taken as a 3 credit graduate course or on a non-credit basis. The institutes offered in 2018 will cover new topics not covered in the 2017 institutes.

An email will be sent out on April 2018 to teachers who have taken the institutes in the past, as well as to teachers who are in our summer institutes data base.
